Quotes Rock! My favorite one you have listed Katie is:
The meaning of life is to find your gift The purpose of life is to give it away ~ Joy J. Golliver
… however … My ultimate favorite is a verse from The Bible:
“In this world you will have trouble but take heart for I have overcome the world” – These the words of Jesus. Now, I’m very much into the new age philosophy and psychology of thinking, believing, conceiving, creating, visualizing, feeling and manifesting, etc. (I’m in the middle of reading some spiritual books that are Completely Unrelated to Christianity and I am also re listening to the entire audios for Think and Grow Rich OVER AND OVER) … but my faith in Jesus Christ will never come Second to these other earthly “wisdoms” – I grew up in a Christian home, therefore those words of Christ’ really mean a lot to me. I pray I’ve added some value to your life.
God’s blessings are best,
Curt

Quotes are good, but you do need to take time to read them and actually take them in, so many people just post them or re-quote them without really thinking about them.

My favourites, up on my wall, are:
- “believe in your dream and they may come true, believe in yourself and they will come true” anon

- “I can accept failure, but I can’t accept not trying.” Michael Jordan

I love kids’ movie, since I have 5 children, I’ve seen plenty. Some of the greatest quotes I have heard, or lessons I have learned have been within those movies. The best part is being with my children when the lesson is learned. :)

There is no effort without error or shortcoming

“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” …Theodore Roosevelt

Hey Katie,

Here’s mine:

Wisdom, “Your trial, by itself, doesn’t make sense. Imagine baking a cake. Eating flour alone won’t make sense. Eating baking soda alone won’t make sense. Eating brown sugar alone won’t make sense. But if you mix them together, and bake a cake, it makes a lot of delicious sense. Your trials, when mixed with God’s blessing, will make sense too. All things will work for your good. Trials included.” @ http://vur.me/143/swom

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, gifted ability, or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a home.

The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace from that day. We cannot change our past, we cannot change the fact that people will act in certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing that we can do is play on the one string that we have and this string is, Attitude. I am convinced that life is ten percent what happens to me and ninety percent how I react to it. And so it is with you….We are in charge of our Attitudes.”
